So I forgot to mention this when the issue came out, but if you’re interested in reading some of my poems about the history of nuclear weapons testing, you can find two in the current issue of Consequence Magazine. I’ve been working on this project for several years now, and I’m really happy these pieces found a home there. The Operation Ivy poem (not the band) is a piece I’m particularly proud of– I often read it at shows. It’s actually an ekphrastic piece I wrote using this image after I finding it in How to Photograph an Atomic Bomb– an incredible compilation of bomb photography I found after it was mentioned this NY Times article. The article is also really worth reading– it’s about the filmmakers and photographers who photographed weapons tests during the Cold War, and was really one of the things that sparked this project in the first place.
